There’s a bit of a nip in the air and these beautiful Endpaper Mitt’s would definitely be a colorful way to keep hands warm in the mornings. Mimi made this beautiful pair using Malabrigo Extra Fine Merino, so you know that makes them super soft.

It’s time for our younger customers like Ingrid, to share their creations. Here she is, proudly showing off her first project, a scarf for her teacher. And back in April a class from the Children’s Day School stopped in the store for a field trip. Knitting improves hand-eye coordination, dexterity and is fun; don’t they look like they’re having fun? So get those kids in your life knitting this summer at Beginning Knitting for Kids. Check the class schedule for details.

It’s always a pleasure to see what gets made out of the yarn we sell. Gladys, at 101 years old, came in to buy yarn to knit beret for her 77 yr old son. Proof that knitting, is good for you!
Barbara made this gorgeous hristening gown for friend’s baby made out of Karabella Super Cashmere Fine. Pattern is Avery Christening Gown and is sure to be a treasured heirloom.
Diana and Samantha model seed stitch cowls of their own design. Made with just one skein of Malabrigo Rasta, that’s a fast knit and gorgeous!
Another Barbara, with a beautiful mitered cardigan made out of Noro Silk Garden.
Finally, Judith made this amazing yarn ball and needle ceramic tea pot. So creative!

It’s time again to share some Customer Creation photos – Alosha’s spectacular cardigan was inspired by the book Viking Knits, by Elsebeth Lavold. Would you just look at those cables! The yarn used is Jo Sharp DK Wool, in the color Pistachio.
Claudia knit herself this beauty – the pattern is the “Benedikta Patchwork Sweater” from the book Noro: Meet the Man Behind the Legendary Yarns. The yarn used is (of course) NoroSilk Garden Sock. Love those stripes!
Now, you would be grinning too if you had designed this amazing cabled sweater! Bill used Cascade 220, the perfect yarn to showcase all those wonderfully textured stitches.
Cat looks lovely in her Kid Silk Haze scarf. All those mitered squares make for a perfect mix of pattern and color. The mohair and silk blend is weightless yet warm, what more could you ask for with the weather we’ve been having?
Can I get a HOORAY for finished projects! Samuel is clearly excited with his coin purse, the second project this 12 year old knitter has ever made. It’s knit using Lamb’s Pride Bulky. His enthusiasm is wonderful!
Finally, Karina, Danielle, Danielle, and Ramey were participating in the “Amazing Bear Hunt” – a UC Berkeley scavenger hunt, where the clue describing ImagiKnit was a knitter’s paradise. Too true, too true!
